How wonderful it is to be in Romania on March 1st!

and to be a woman of course! March is here and all the markets are full with flowers and “martisoare” (little charms with red& white cords).

If in other years people use to buy charms with chimney sweepers, horseshoes, hearts and clover, nowadays, the handmade little jewelries are trending. Items like kabalah, shamballa bracelets, cute animals, and Murano glass charms, seems to be selling like crazy.

Tomorrow, 1 st of March as in Romanian tradition, it is the day when women receive from men or sometimes other women  1 “martisor” and why not flowers.

What I especially love is that we will see and smell everywhere fresh spring flowers like tulips, daffodils, snowdrops, freesia, primroses, hyacinths and many more.
